The overhauled diving area will have four platforms up to 10m high, plus two temporary springboards, and a “dry dive” training area for competitors, with trampolines and harnesses to let them practice twists and turns.

The depth of the 25m long diving pool can also be adjusted and made shallower from a maximum of 5m down to zero, and includes six swimming lanes, meaning it can be used for other sporting purposes.
